Sophie completed both her MA in Design and BA in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins in London. While studying for her degree she completed two internships in Madrid with jewellery designer Anton Heunis, worked on a project as a co-researcher at the V&A museum, as well as winning the Eva London graduation ring competition for University of the Arts London. Sophie’s work challenges expectations of materiality. Her work in Corian merges the ideas of technological perfection and ‘human generated flaws’ to gain a sensitivity that is not normally recognised in this solid surface material.
This innovative jewellery collection embraces the unique opportunities of Corian, a material more usually associated with architecture. The contemporary ‘heritage’ of techniques and forms bridges these two worlds. My collection combines bold forms and soft surfaces demonstrating how perceived ‘imperfections’ are re-conceptualised to striking advantage. By questioning how technology affects the emotional resonance of jewellery these pieces respond to the dynamic digital age.
